Custom fret

Hi there,

From some time, SimBrief seems to automatically generate the cargo weight depending on the number of passengers. And by hovering the mouse over the “?”, it is written “By default, passenger baggage is…”.

So would there be a solution to remove this (“default”) automatic generation and manually define the exact cargo weight (sent in SimBrief from the virtual airline thanks to the API, via “& cargo =”)?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,


By default since the change (a week or so ago?), default airframes use 79kg/175lb per passenger and 25kg/55lb for luggage (previously passengers and luggage were combined with the sum of both weights).

You can define custom passenger weights with zero luggage and possibly a higher passenger weight via custom airframes (custom airframe parameters can also be supplied directly via the API, this is probably explained in the API-related guides in the dedicated subforum).
